Subject: Very Good Overall
Sound is good.

Jigsaw - 1st jam is a usual Jigsaw 1st jam. Doesn't get away from the feel of Jigsaw at all.

Digital Buddha - This jam is all about Magner and that's a very good thing. Great job by Barber giving Magner his space to play around, and Magner takes full advantage. Very good teamwork on this jam.

Humu > Sound 1 > Waves > HAB - The jam out of Humu is pretty good overall. It starts out with a little too much Barber meandering for my tastes, but he gets himself in check about four minutes before the switch to Sound 1 and manages to make it into a very pretty jam. Sound 1 jam is really cool. There's not really a prominent melody in this jam (maybe Barber) but they make it pretty interesting the whole time, up until they switch gears and head towards Waves. The jam feels pretty forced at the beginning of the faster tempo, but they regain their footing and manage to come up with some pretty cool stuff. The Waves peak is actually very well done. Neat that rather than going straight to a trance jam out of Waves, they drop into a cool little dub jam. About 7 minutes from the HAB changeover, they switch from a cool psy-dub minor key jam to a major key jam, and switch back and forth. Really, really cool stuff here. They build a great happy peak and then break down again, and get pretty dissonant just before going into HAB. HAB jam starts out really cool. Magner is on the vibes patch, and it sounds really good. It's a really triumphant jam, and I love these kinds of jams.

Stone > Devil's Waltz - Love this pairing, but of course there's no jam.

Crickets > House Dog - The Crickets 1st jam is pretty boring for most of it. There are a few cool parts here and there, but overall it's rather forgettable. The 2nd jam begins with a start/stop jam, and then continues with some Biscuits funk, and ultimately slows down and gets a little happier once they approach House Dog. Again, pretty forgettable, but this one is at least pretty pleasant before House Dog hits. 1st HDPF jam is good as far as 1st House Dog jams go, but never really leaves House Dog territory of course. Barber and Magner are playing some really pretty stuff. Second jam is fantastic, and quite psychedelic at parts.

Home Again - Not bad. They actually get away from the song structure for a little bit, and manage to sneak in a very pretty jam.

Resurrection - Not jamming out of Resurrection is a crime. A crime and a travesty.

Magellan - Dub jam in the middle of Magellan. Starts out pretty generic but actually turns into something quite enjoyable.

5 stars. First set is fantastic, save Jigsaw which is just average. Second set is very good, and encore turned out nice. Buddha, Humu > Sound 1 > Waves > HAB, HDPF (2nd), Home Again, Magellan all are good things for your ears to listen to. Crickets, Resurrection, and Jigsaw Earth are less so but still decent, and of course it's hard to not love Stone > DW.

Subject: Awesome show but don't be fooled about the sound
This show is a fine performance but the sound is not that great. I don't know what else the guy below has heard, not very much if he thinks this is really high quality. It also wasn't their first appearance at High Sierra, that would be the night before.

Subject: Excellent show - great recording!
This is a really high quality recording of a fantastic show. The Disco Biscuits were really on top of their game at this show...the final notes of the 2003 High Sierra Music Festival. Long after most everyone had gone to bed...hours after Yonder Mountain String Band (the other late-night show) faded away, tDB kept cranking out the jams until well past 6am. It was a triumphant first High Sierra appearance for tDB, hopefully the first of many to come.

Don't miss the GrooveTV episode filmed at this show, as it's a great one!
